Was the invisible brought into the light? - preview

by Hazel Shellens, published by Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre. £4

This Woodbrooke 'occasional paper' follows up the 1986 Swarthmore Lecture Bringing the invisible into the light
  • This was a mould-breaking event that challenged sexism in the Society of Friends, the lecture being given by a group of Quaker women from their personal experience
  • The research involved interviewing participants from the Quaker Women's Group, individuals present at the time and the Swarthmore Lecture committee
  • It documents the process and content of the lecture as well as responses from the pages of The Friend, and Woodbrooke itself

  • Ann Janes, East Devon MM
